This article introduces an alternative way of looking at and researching tourism by translating actor-network theory into the provinces of these studies. Using the concept of tourismscapes, the article argues that people and things become entangled via complex processes of translation. People, organizations, objects, technologies, and spaces are all concurrently brought together in the performance of tourismscapes. Thus, studying them implies the analysis of processes of association and ordering between heterogeneous elements. The article summarizes this agenda for studies based on actor-network theory by proposing seven constituents for future research.
